Introduced in 1974 and made until 1977, the 911 2.7MFI was manufactured in similar numbers to its earlier sibling - the 2.7 Carrera RS. However, right-hand drive production of the MFI was very limited and just 48 cars exist worldwide today. Weighing just 1075 kilograms and equipped with the 210bhp, 2687cc Type 911/83 air cooled flat 6 engine, incorporating Bosch mechanical fuel injection - hence "MFI"- it was the pinnacle of the performance derivatives of the G-Series chassis.

Its performance was excellent, quicker in fact than any 911 produced before or after it for the next decade. 0-60mph took just 5 seconds and the car would continue to accelerate up to over 150mph. Today, just 21 UK right-hand drive Coupé examples exist on the Carrera 2.7MFI registry and this one was supplied on the 13th November 1975 by Swinford Motors of Stourbridge.

Still finished in its original colour combination of Ice Green with black half leather, and with its original engine and gearbox, this matching numbers, UK example is fresh from a complete restoration and repaint. The detailed restoration took many months to complete and all the key original panels were retained, including the sills and floor pans, with great care and attention to detail to preserve the originality and authenticity of this 55,000 mile car. Renowned Porsche specialists, RS 911, were responsible for the detailed strip, rebuild and repaint, whilst the rebuild of the engine, gearbox and diff were entrusted to Phil Hindley's highly respected Tech 9 Motorsport in Liverpool.

Additionally, the suspension, brakes and wiring were all refurbished or replaced by RS 911 and the standard of this particular restoration must be seen today to be fully appreciated. The car represents an extremely rare investment opportunity, particularly at this price guide, for the astute Porsche collector and Silverstone Auctions are proud of their association with this very special car.

The comprehensive history file includes many invoices past and present, as well as previous MOT certificates and photographic documentation of the restoration. The original service books, original tools, original radio, 3 keys, etc all accompany the car and we invite independent inspections on request prior to the Sale.
